A few things…

I’m still working on finalizing contact with all of the winners of my giveaway, once everyone has confirmed that their code works I’ll be posting a list of the winners. ^_~

In other news, I’m still very much deep in cosplay/costume making. My con season is technically over for now but I’m doing repairs, finishing-up some in-progress costumes, & preparing for photoshoots (this includes both Mami & Liliana in the very near future).

The photoshoot I’m working on planning for Mami will be the one finally with her musket! I have a few minor repairs to make on her but the main hold-up is currently the weather & also settling on a location (I want it to be awesome). To those that helped me get it you will see them before anybody else as a special treat in addition to the prints you’ve already pre-ordered! ♥♥♥

I will hopefully also be getting my website fully up to date soon, I’ve been making small bits of progress here & there on it and I hope to keep it up! I also want to finish my back-log of photo & video editing, I’ve started on some of the photoshoots I gave at Katsucon & will be working from there. (Please keep in mind I’m doing all this while still looking for a job…@@)

In addition to all that I’m working on making more of the cosplay jewelry I sell (it is currently up in my storenvy please check it out!) Since I am between jobs I’m hoping to get into some artist alleys in the meantime to actually be able to sell it in person like I was able to do so at AB thanks to @soltian with the help of @chazzfox to connect us. ♥♥♥

I am also seriously contemplating selling prints & such of my cosplays, if you are at all interested please feel free to give me feedback (ask, comment, reblog, tweet, etc…), even if it is just to say that you are interested. ^^; Also I wanna make prints that people would be interested in so let me know your favorite picture that you would like to see turned into a print! ;)

P.S. I know I’ve resisted the idea of selling prints for so long but it is one of the few ways I can think of to help out while I’m unemployed…both for my cosplay budget (which is virtually non-existant right now) as well as other expenses. ^^;

Top five cosplays seen at cons / meet ups this year

I didn’t get to any meet-ups this year for various reasons & most cons I was on a crazy schedule so this was a little trickier than it could have been. ^^;;;

These are the top five that made me really happy to see (there are ones that quickly came to mind/weren’t people I know):

  1. The Professor (Nichijou)
  2. Tsunami (Tenchi)
  3. Kid & Serge (Chrono Cross)
  4. Sailor V (Sailor Moon)
  5. Kaito Kid (Detective Conan)

Popularity-wise, my guess is probably something along the lines of:

  1. Homestuck
  2. Dr. Who
  3. My Little Pony
  4. Attack on Titan
  5. Adventure Time

(tho I could be horribly off)
